|-a||Use both subscribed and unsubscribed groups. Overrides the -u option.|
|-i||Use only ignored groups, i.e. which are not in the presentation sequence.|

|-p||Use only groups with unread (pending) articles.|
|-r||Use only read groups, i.e. without unread articles.|
|-s||Use only groups which are in the presentation sequence.|
|-u||Use only unsubscribed groups.|
